them care enough about it that they will actually vote on it. >> considering joe biden, susan, has been leading the charge on gun control, i want to play one more clip from his google chat. he was asked if an assault weapons ban would -- >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapons in somebody's hands who doesn't know how to use it. even one who does know how to use it. you know. it's harder to use an assault weapon and hit something than it is a shotgun. you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells. >> this seems to be part of the strategy. sort of common sense. also things like we've heard supporters say you don't need an assault rifle to shoot a duck. you need 30 shots from a magazine to kill a deer you probably shouldn't be out there hunting. what's the messaging and how important is the messaging? >> the messaging is important and we certainly see vice president biden out there. and the president, too. the white house says the president will be making speeches doing some trips that relate to this measure but the
president joe dieden w -- biden sworn in by chief justice sotomayor. the first latina to ever swear in a vice president. what do we expect today? lots of celebration, pageantry and some historic firsts. dan lothian following the day's events. how does it begin, where does it go, how does it end? >> reporter: a very long day. the president will start off his day at the white house, waking up, working out in the private gym, having presidential daily briefing on national security issues and other issues as well. and sit down for breakfast with the family, and then around 8:45, they will head across the street to st. john's episcopal church, a church known as the president's church. and often -- the first family attended service there. a couple hours later, they will head up to the capitol for the swearing in ceremony where the president and vice president will take part in the swearing in. getting the oath there. this is a public ceremony, of course, privately yesterday was when the vice president and president had the oath administered and then later in the afternoon, the president,
wife, and two daughters looking on. he has to be sworn in on january 20th. the vice president joe biden was sworn in by sonia sotomayor. made history as the first latina to swear in a vice president. here is looking ahead. the first family starts the day with a service at st. john's epit copal church at 8:45. and the president is sworn in 11:55 eastern time. and the presidential address at noon and later at 2:35, lead the inaugural parade down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. and then the balls and all the partying begin. we begin with john king, a look at what else is happening today. hey, john. >> hello again, soledad. the balls and parties begin after the ceremony. a bit of a break with before we to party. we have the traditional congressional lunch with leaders and then time for the big parade down pennsylvania avenue. suzanne ma suzanne malveaux takes us through the parade route. >> prime real estate, ninth and pennsylvania. you know this is about a mile stretch or so where the capitol, fr from where he takes the oath of office down to the white house. a lot of excitement an

's off next week to las vegas to talk about immigration reform. he has joe biden in virginia talking about guns. he's taking it outside of the beltway, a term i hate, but which is exactly what he's trying to do to get all of this done. thanks, dan. so perhaps next thing falls into the category of spoils of victory. or perhaps it would have happened anyway. but history was made at the pentagon this week which outgoing defense secretary leon panetta lifted the ban on women serving in direct combat. >> it's clear to all of us that women are contributing in unprecedented ways to the military's mission of defending the nation. women represent 15% of the force , over 200,000. the fact is that they have become an integral part of our ability to perform our mission. gwen: speaking of performing her mission, secretary of state hillary clinton went to capitol hill for the first time to talk about the americans killed in benghazi. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country
